Cynda Jones is a doctoral student and behavioral scientist dedicated to the advancement of society. Throughout her career she has coached, mentored, and inspired countless people worldwide. In January 2020, Ms. Jones became a cryptocurrency investor which sparked her interest in the Financial Technology industry. She began to study blockchain technology and observed gaps in academic literature about the impact of blockchain in business operations and strategic management. When Cynda purchased her first NFT in January 2022, she observed the altruistic characteristics of the NFT investors and believes well-managed NFTs can become a gateway to a kinder, more altruistic society. As she enters the last year of her doctoral program, she has begun to network with other stakeholders in the FinTech space leading discussions about the strategic management implications of FinTech and how best to prepare for the new digital (Web3) economy.

CURRENT AREAS OF STUDY

Cynda and Sean Swiedom talk about how blockchain is impacting diversity and systemic racism.
ARE NFTS OUR PATHWAY TO AN ALTRUISTIC SOCIETY?
As I become better acquainted with the NFT world, I invite others to join me to discus thoughts about how NFTs will affect the future. Recent participation in multiple NFT projects has taught me the value of a digital community. My co-holders have become a daily part of my life and when we recently met during the NFT NYC conference, you would not have known we met for the first time. My NFT communities are like my family in some ways and I want to know more about the experience of others.
THE BUSINESS ECONOMICS OF BLOCKCHAIN
